Another day, another Pro Day for head coach Chip Kelly. This time, Kelly took his watchful eye down to Baton Rouge, LA, for the LSU pro day. Of course, Kelly and the Eagles used a third-round pick last season on defensive tackle Bennie Logan.

Per usual, LSU boasts a slew of draft-eligible prospects for this May's NFL Draft.
Odell Beckham Jr., 5-foot-11, 198, and Jarvis Landry, 5-foot-11, 205, form the highest-rated duo of wide receiver prospects in the draft and both are expected to merit first-day consideration. Both will likely be on the Eagles' radar.
Quarterback Zach Mettenberger is one of the more intriguing players in this year's draft, as a boasts a rocket arm but is coming off a torn ACL.
Trai Turner, 6-foot-3, 310, is considered one of the best guard prospects in this year's draft, while a pair of players he blocked for will command attention at running back. Jeremy Hill, 6-foot-1, 233, is among the highest-rated runners in the class while his backfield mate Alfred Blue, 6-foot-2, 223, is intriguing as well.
On defense, defensive tackles Ego Ferguson, 6-foot-3, 315, and Anthony Johnson, 6-foot-2, 308, are both considered to be mid-round picks. Meanwhile, safety Craig Loston and linebacker Lamin Barrow both performed well at the Senior Bowl in front of the Eagles' decision makers.
